New Ship Project

Plans for the future…

A few years ago the organization signed contracts for the design and construction of a completely new hospital ship to be added to the Mercy Ships fleet. With a length of 174m and a breath of 28m, the new ship will have over 600 crew members. That’s 50% more than the Africa Mercy which will continue its current work even after the new ship comes online.

We hope that within a couple of years the new ship will become operational as a training hospital ship and even though a large part of the money has been raised to pay for the construction of the new vessel, there is still a lot of work to be done, and a lot of medical and auxiliary equipment to be acquired. More than doubling our overall capacity is an exciting prospect and we hope that you will support us as we look for the people, the equipment, the necessary supplies, and the money that we will need to help more than twice as many needy people each year.
